The smart way to rackmount your Mac mini

Designed for the newer aluminum Mac minis, the RackMac makes a perfect headquarters - in a 1U package. A protective top cover and 11" mounting depth make the RackMac consistent with most racks and a dependable protector.

Convenient front-panel features

Sonnet Technologies didn't simply make an enclosure sized to hold two Mac minis; they made the RackMac to give you the access you need to get the most out of them. Front-panel cutouts let you insert CDs and DVDs, while on/off buttons let you operate the Mac minis' rear power buttons. You even get front-panel USB connectors, so you can avoid having to to to the rear of your rack when you want to plug in or unplug quickly.

Cable management keeps your setup tidy and safe

The RackMac enclosure gives you complete access to the rear of each Mac mini installed. Sonnet Technologies also built cable tie holes into the chassis, so you can easily secure power cords and cables. The result? A tidy, pro-quality rig - and no accidental disconnects!

Great!

Houses my Mac mini perfectly in my rack with an external drive in the other bay. Power button works flawlessly and the front USB ports are awesome to have.
5/5

excellent product

The price is significant. But worth it. I have used this for more than a year in a portable rig and i can say it has held up extremely well and is an excellent way to incorporate your mac mini into a music rackmount system. The power-on button is really a sweet piece of engineering, congrats on simplicity of design to whoever did that. Also very clever to bring a USB port to the front. One nit-pick, I found that my wireless trackpad no longer worked from a distance perhaps due to all the interference of the other gear in my rig. A successful work-around was to revert to a USB mouse. Don't let that hold you back. This is by far the nicest way i've seen to incorporate a mac into a rig.

Perfect for the job

Super duper
5/5

Perfect!

I've been using these to rack two mac minis for stage use. One runs Ableton Live (loops, clicks, tracks, etc), the other runs main stage (keyboard patches) throw that in a rack with some audio interfaces, rack mount DI's, and some power supplies and you have a killer keys rig/loop set up - I love it!

Just Awesome!

I purchased this RackMac to go along with the 2011 Mac Mini that I had also purchased from the awesome folks at Sweetwater. The downside to the Mini, is that its bottom is all plastic, with no grip whatsoever. The result is that your Mini will slide around on any desk surface, and due to its small size, can be removed by a thief pretty easily. Here's where the RackMac comes in. It securely houses, not one, but up to two Mac Mini computers, so that it not only blends in with the rack environment, but is totally secure, and keeps your connecting cables out of the way. What's even better is the possibilities it opens up for mobile use. Instead of having to lug around a huge Mac Pro, worry about your MacBook, or other PC, rack mount this baby with a Mini (which hands down the base model 2.3gHz 2011 Mini has more processing power than the first gen Mac Pro towers, same 96k session in Pro Tools running 95% RTAS load, runs right at 50% with the Mini...that's insane!). So if you have a Mini and have been trying to find a solution to mounting it, or have been thinking on getting a Mini... This is hands down the solution for you! You won't regret it... I know I don't!
